Welcome to Year 4!
Hi everyone, welcome to the Year 4 page. This page allows us to share the wonderful work and exciting topics we will be covering. We will add photographs and video of work we have completed. Look out for special links and information about what we are learning about!
Year four have enjoyed learning about the water cycle.
Our Topic this term is 'Why were Norman castles not bouncy?' We studied the buildings and structures in a Norman castle and made our own motte, bailey and keep..
We're not just making a mess, we're doing science! This week we made cornflour slime to help us investigate the properties of non-Newtonian liquids.
As part of their topic work on Romans year 4 were lucky enough to visit the excellent Dewa centre in Chester. We enjoyed a tour of the museum and learned about life as a roman. We discovered that Romans had some very unusual favourite foods and ideas about medicine. Then we had a chance to get 'hands on' with dressing up and playing roman games. After lunch we set out in our Legion to march across Chester to visit the Roman Gardens and the ampi theatre where we witnessed a savage battle between two gladiators (or Mr Bansel and Mrs Oancea as you might know them). Our legion then marched back to the centre to the rousing strains of the Roman marching chant. Sin, sin, sin dec sin! Many thanks to Mrs Thompson and Mrs Oancea for joining us on a bitterly cold day and to the children of Y4 for their wonderful behaviour and enthusiasm.
As part of our topic work on structures, Y4 were challenged to create a free standing skyscraper using nothing but paper. As you can see they were very successful.
Superclass party 15.12.16
We had a fabulous time at our suoerclass party this afternoon. Everyone looked very festive in their Christmas jumpers and we enjoyed classic party games like 'pin the tie on Mr Rushton' and balloon relay races. We indulged in a spot of conga and had a festive photo booth. Thanks to the very generous food donations from parents we had a splendid buffet which the children demolished in no time.
Coram Life Education Centre 28.11.16
Today year 4 attended a session entitled ' It's Great to be me' in the Life Education Caravan. The children were discussing how the body worked and how to maintain a healthy body as well as considering why people are not all the same and how to cooperate and accommodate these differences.
Year 4 were blown away with all the positive feedback from our families and the rest of the school for our 'Who wants to be a Millionaire' themed presentation. We are very grateful to all those who supported us as we rehearsed and performed our 'masterpiece'. Thank you all and remember to use your 'POWER FOR GOOD!'
